Outnumber your Weaknesses

February 18, 2015 – 1:52 pm
Though you may feel you struggle in isolation with the hardships of behavioral change and the surprising push-back your Will can encounter, take faith that we are working on our own just as you, alone but together in our commitment. You may feel overwhelmed but, together, our challenges are outnumbered by the forces within us. #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Outnumber your Weaknesses";a2a_linkurl="";

Older = Wiser (I hope)

Though exercise can be fun, the older I get, the more I just enjoy movement. #TACFIT a2a_linkname="Older = Wiser (I hope)";a2a_linkurl="";

Living in the Future??

February 18, 2015 – 1:51 pm
A poster criticized my "scientific" approach to workout timing which I use to "nudge" performance onto one's circadian rhythm. The poster commented that I "don't live in the present and truly experience movement and its now-ness," that my "state of mind is flawed," because I'm "living in the future." SMH *facepalm* You think because I’m planning the future, my state of mind is flawed, and that it’s better to live in the present moment? Incorrect. The present moment we experience is 80 milliseconds in the past. Therefore, living in the present moment is technically living in the past. So, if you’re suggesting that it’s better to live in the present moment, you need to live 80 milliseconds in the future. Since you say I’m already there, you’re agreeing with my state of mind. I'm not so sure you understand what you're saying. The problem with armchair Buddhism is the lack of understanding the brain's ...

Deformity Follows Dysfunction

February 18, 2015 – 1:50 pm
Form follows function, yes, but don't bright-side your physique, believing properly-executed technique alone builds function. Through smart workout design, counter the posture your body has adopted, so that your dysfunction doesn't build deformity. Whatever posture you exercise gets stronger. #TACFIT #511Tactical #SAMBO70 a2a_linkname="Deformity Follows Dysfunction";a2a_linkurl="";

Because of You, I didn’t Quit

February 16, 2015 – 9:26 am
Rarely do we consider the far-reaching effects of our determination. Merely persevering can change an observer's life. Your simplest triumph of commitment could become the reason someone says, "Because of you, I didn't quit." #AccountabilitywithaHigherPurpose #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Because of You, I didn't Quit";a2a_linkurl="";

Invisible Champion

February 16, 2015 – 9:25 am
My boy was emotionally collapsing during the championship game. They all were: suddenly ten points behind. I had been there mentally many times myself. Walking over, I prayed that he could hear me through the delirium of catastrophizing thoughts. "They're too fast, Dad," he blurted with reddened eyes. "Look," pointing to his team walking back after his opponents scored, "they're passing ahead of you while your backs are turned. They're not faster! When you go back in, run down and get everyone turned around. You just need to turn around!" He did just that. Every time the other team rebounded the ball, he sprinted back first and got his team turned around. The opponents didn't score another bucket in the remaining two periods except for a free throw, and my son's team came back from ten down to win the championships. My boy didn't make the winning shots. But he said ...

#1 Most Controversial Fitness Tip: Gain Weight!

February 13, 2015 – 11:18 am
#1 Controversial TACFIT Feature: WEIGHT GAIN. "Tactical" means to not waste any aspect on frivolity or lack of conscious awareness of action or behavior. WHEN you eat is as important as what you eat, and there are specific windows in your day, that if you're ignoring them, even the best diet in the world will cause you to lose muscle and store excess fat. Be tactical about how and WHEN you eat and exercise. #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="#1 Most Controversial Fitness Tip: Gain Weight!";a2a_linkurl="";

Make Goals, Even If You Can’t Reach Them

February 13, 2015 – 10:25 am
We often quit because we believe every goal must be realized. But true goals are often not destinations but points of reference on the horizon. Goals aren't always to be achieved. Sometimes, they're directions toward which we travel. Make distant ones; then, the journey gains surprise, excitement and enjoyment. Be process-oriented and outcome-detached. #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Make Goals, Even If You Can't Reach Them";a2a_linkurl="";
